|I want to have a get-together of Indian families. It would be a great opportunity to meet other fellow Indians and just have a good evening of food (Indian food of course!), drinks, music and entertainment.
I am an event coordinator and I see a need to bring the community together. I am a transplant myself and don't have any family here to speak of, but I do miss the culture and I want to do something about it.
So here's my idea: I coordinate a meet and greet for the Indian community. Tell your friends and family, and bring them to a venue where we can enjoy a fun night of entertainment and just hanging out, Indian style! Depending on how many people reply to this, I charge a very small fee for admission and for providing food and entertainment (including magic!), and we all have a great night! If this is something that interests a lot of people, I would be happy to do it once a month or even once a week. Oh, and it doesn't have to be exclusively Indian - bring your non-Indian friends too! The key is to get away from the computer and TV and socialize and be human and have FUN!
Please reply at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you and anyone else would be interested and I can start looking at venues, as well as planning a menu.
